Security for Telecommuters
Telecommuters commonly run their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured area. This worsens their vulnerability to cyber attacks and calls for careful deployment of security appliances, remote endpoint monitoring, and the enforcement of security policies that follow leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help your organization to design, deploy and administer a compliant security solution that safeguards vital data in networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow you to build a network environment that can be securely utilized by on-premises users as well as by an at-home workforce, mobile employees, vendors, clients, and other stakeholders. Next-generation firewall devices permit you to assign and control appropriate permissions to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security profile as your business evolves and as network attacks grow more complex. Progent supports both current and older firewall appliances from all leading manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, and Fortinet.

- Online Endpoint Security Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate devices used by at-home workers and either block or spot and respond to modern cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a small-footprint software agent is installed on every secured endpoint, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art AI technology to identify zero-day attacks on arrival. When an attack is discovered, ProSight ASM immediately isolates the infected endpoint from the corporate network to contain the threat. Since the ProSight Active Security Monitoring agent is self-contained, endpoint devices stay protected even if they are offline.

- Security Audits can evaluate the vulnerability of your information system to all classes of outside and internal security attacks for a network that incorporates an at-home workforce. Progent can run remote, automated cybersecurity inventory software for rapidly and affordably uncovering a broad range of security gaps that can be surfaced over the Internet. Progent's endpoint security assessment experts, which can be managed by network security experts with top credentials including CISM, ISSAP, and GIAC, can assist your business to evaluate your operations and policies and review your network architecture to enable you to design top-level protection for your teleworkers.
